Unfortunate that they are doing construction and had parts of the trail off limits. But the outcome will be worth the wait. It's a beautiful park and very easy to walk. Will definitely be back to view the Japanese Garden soon. Information desk with snacks and souvenirs are on site...and restrooms!

Beautiful walk during a sunny Seattle day.

Nice park. You can just come in and relax. Nothing for working out (if you're not running). But you'll definitely enjoy the nature around.

The winter garden is absolutely deserving a visit during spring.
